at the international monetary fund, annie lowry an economic policy reporter for "the new york times." steven moore, editorial writer for "the wall street journal." ken, you tear financial crisis guru here. forget the politics. just give us the math. if washington fails to avert the cliff, the worst-case scenario will be the combination of tax hikes and spending cuts. what does that do to our economy? >> well, if they don't come to a deal and then sit there all next year and don't come to a deal, we will go back into recession. it will be very, very ugly. and the united states is one of the few bright spots in the world and it will be ugly to have the whole world go into recession. but i don't think that's likely. i think if we pass for a month then they'll eventually pass something. but it shows the dysfunction in washington of not being able to pass anything. by the way, ali, the debt ceiling's coming up. they're not agreeing on that. so even if they agree on this, then in a month or two they're going to be in the same position on the debt ceiling. >> and our debt ceiling actually comes to a head
presidential candidate howard dean, steve moore of the "wall street journal" editorial board, author of "return to prosperity." steve, i begin with you. we have from the "wall street journal" editorial page costco's dividend ta dividend as tax epiphany. taxes matter, steve. even though there are a lot of people in this world who think not. >> they matter a whole hell of a lot. it was very predictable these companies would be starting to pay deluges of dividends now. if you pay them now your shareholders only pay 15%. if you wait six weeks they have to pay as high as 40, 42, 45% depending on where that rate ends up. so taxes do matter. it's affecting behavior. let me sayhist my good friend howard dinos this, laimplarry. when he was a governor he cut taxes not raised them to make his state more productive. you should be advising this president not to raise those rates. >> steve i was hoping to get some help from you. you know very well, one of the things we can both agree on the deficit is out of control. >> that's for sure. >> you know as well as i do that the best deal for deficit hawks, leavin
cuts? what other options do lawmakers have as a last resort. steven moore joins us from washington. steven is a senior economics writer with "the wall street journal." he writes op-eds. he's involved in the opinion pages. he's also a co-founder of the organization called club for growth, which has really been at the forefront of fighting tax increases across the board. so, you know, sometimes, steven, on tv we talk about grover norquist and a lot of people really don't like him. you think grover has the right idea. you have colleague es in the senate, in the house of representatives. we have talked about this endlessly for many months and we both sort of went into the last few days thinking they'll get a deal, they'll do it. it will increase some tacks on the rich and we'll figure out a number. i think both of us put forward it would be $500,000, the threshold. were we wrong or what? >> well, you know, ali, i love you, but i don't want to spend new year's eve with you and we may be doing that. i don't know. look, i still think -- i have been saying this for the last three weeks, th
to on today's show. we don't -- for-god's sake gwen moore i love her, on the big show, and sexy liberal john fugelsang who is on that very special tonight in hour number three. >> yes. >> stephanie: let's go to doug in st. charles. you are on the "stephanie miller show." hi, doug. >> caller: good morning. >> stephanie: hi go ahead. >> caller: this is a set up for jim. >> stephanie: okay. >> caller: this is a setup for jim. i had read a study -- a book on comparative ideologies and when they talk about the fascist party some of the things that stand out is disbelief in science, propaganda which they found radio is the most effective form of it. they went to radio. and it's kind of funny because there's like seven or eight different things on it but each one of them describes the republican party today. >> the original [ inaudible ] in italy, the corporatist party. >> correct. correct. >> stephanie: exactly. oh by the way, greg writes about reince preibus, gym! >> reinholt reince prebus! [ dog barking ] >> i never thought we would use that sound bite. >> stephanie: they want m
on what is already a fragile economic recovery. stephen moore joins us. when economic growth was comparatively pretty good, this the president said no, now you don't want to raise tax rates because the economy is fragile. gdp is worse now, is that? >> i think almost exactly two years ago, the president said the economy is too fragile to raise taxes on anyone. so what you have essentially was a deal that was put together. remember back in december of 2010 when we were facing a very similar situation where they agreed to extend all the tax cuts for two years. by the way, that is why we are facing this new fiscal cliff. it is infuriating to business owners. i have been talking to a lot of them last couple of weeks. this is banana republic type of politics. no one knows what it will look like. it makes it impossible for businesses to do planning, purchasing equipment, hiring workers. you are seeing the impact on the stock market already where we have a lousy 10 days with stocks because everybody is in this kind of state of fear and trepidation that we are going to go over this cl
it. if he hopeful we will get a last minute deal? stephen moore. look, you are here earlier this month and said we will be back here talking with you. >> here we are. ashley: we are getting inklings of some sort of deal being put together. >> i heard for the first time what you just heard. the framework of that deal -- i think that was something that probably could make it through the senate and the house. nancy pelosi will have to deliver anywhere from 50-100 votes from her democratic office. but, of course, let's not forget that gets us around the immediate problem of what they are calling the fiscal cliff. this is just act one. then we deal with the dead ceiling. this was just the idea of an opening bid, if you will. i think it will be good news for the market if a deal like this were enacted. shibani: you are talking about the markets. i want to ask you about their role in getting to this point. we have seen steep declines. multi- hundred point the kleins in some instances, we have not been met in this case. is this part of the reason we are in this position? >> well, yo
to get a reality check from stephen moore, a member of the wall street editorial board and author of "who's the fairest of them all?" . stephen, we have spent six month talking about this can't happen we can't go off the fiscal cliff. we've got to meet this deadline and now they are saying, it's not that bad. which is it? >> look, i don't think it's the end of the world and i think it would get resolved in the weeks ahead but it's a black eye for our whole political system. think about this. here we are two or three days away from the start of the year without any american business or investor or workerer knowing what the payroll tax is going to be, income tax is going to be, i mean, this just isn't a very good way to run a country and it's almost like banana republic politics. >> my dad used to say, no way to run a railroad. let's talk about a couple of things. this whole idea that tax rates on everyone will go up. does the irs, does the treasury department have the ability to sort of say, look, here's some guidance. keep withholding where it is? >> the irs is in turmoil right now. they
